Solar Ready solutions are ideal for corporate networks where compatibility, scalability, ease of deployment, minimal downtime and security are critical. IT managers are also under increasing pressure to reduce operating costs and help to reduce the corporation Carbon Footprint. Solar Ready solutions can help you meet your 15 year CO2 reduction targets overnight.
Many low power consumption IT products come with a low performance, high price compromise. Not Solar Ready. Our products utilise industry standard high performance components to ensure reliability and compatibility. These components interface to Solar Ready proprietary ultra-efficient power supplies which remove all the wasteful energy conversions and make our IT systems compatible with renewable energy sources.
Because our solutions are based upon industry standards our solutions can replace or work alongside existing infra-structure. Because our systems draw so little power we can speed up desktop deployment and centralise power management by powering our desktop computers, monitors and thin client solutions by using POE techniques and power injection solutions with existing CAT5 cables. Don’t just put your computers to sleep turn them off completely. The centralised Power bank approach also allows your corporate network to introduce a UPS for each and every desktop computer which is prohibitively expensive with conventional mains powered computers or requires large diesel generators which are expensive to run and maintain.
All of our products are completely compatible with the latest operating systems. Because we use components from leading manufacturers, any system vulnerabilities can be secured quickly. Also as part of a corporate wide operating system upgrade, drivers and support will be available for many years.
Our products are rigorously tested and because they don’t draw as much power they don’t generate as much heat which is the cause of most system failures. Less heat also means less cooling which means smaller or no fans and lower Air conditioning costs.
Many corporations and call centres have already made the switch to thin clients. Solar ready can provide solutions to get power to the desktops and monitors using the CAT5 infrastructure removing the requirement for “wall warts” and other mains power to DC adapters which waste a significant amount of power.
Solar Ready products are ideally suited to all sectors of the education market, from Primary schools all the way through to Universities and higher education. Cost effective, high availability and ease of administration are critical.
Solar Ready can provide a wide range of solutions from thin clients, ultra-compact desktops, desktop PCs with expansion capabilities, servers, network switches and UPS systems.
Thin client solutions are ideal for most education environments and can support all productivity applications such as Browsers, MS Word, Power Point, Excel to name but a few. Thin client solutions provide ease of management and using the Solar Ready centralised power management solution allow entire schools and colleges to provide “Off Grid” IT suites which are immune to ever increasing power bills and power cuts. Schools with existing Thin client infrastructures can also be retrofitted to take advantage of centralised power.
For more specialist and resource intensive applications such as Video Editing, Music Editing and some fields of programming Solar Ready has a solution. We can provide conventional Ultra-compact PCs which can be mounted on the back of the monitor or Desktop PCs with sophisticated Graphics cards, Sound Cards or Data Acquisition Cards. All our machines are energy efficient and can capitalise on the stored energy obtained from Solar PV or low tariff energy.
Solar Ready servers are the most energy efficient and are the only machines with a 4* energy rating. They provide the ideal platform for all applications: Storage servers, webservers, analysis, virtualisation or administrative. All servers run from DC energy and have an internal UPS which will allow the machine to continue running for a further 5-8hours when disconnected from the primary Solar Ready Battery Bank. The UPS provides significant low cost resilience and avoids the need to acquire more expensive additional mains powered UPS solutions.
